Traffic Division Conducts Safety Mission

TRAFFIC DIVISION CONDUCTS BICYCLE/MOTORIST SAFETY ENFORCEMENT MISSION

On Wednesday, September 28, 2005, from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m., in the area of Northeast 122nd Avenue and Northeast Halsey Street, the Portland Police Bureau Traffic Division will conduct a bicycle/motorist safety enforcement mission. The purpose of the mission is to increase safety and awareness for both bicyclists and motorists.

Missions of this nature are designed to raise awareness, educate, inform, and enforce the current laws. It is an opportunity for the police and citizens to interact in a way that promotes the livability of our neighborhoods and increase safety for bicyclists.

There have been many changes in the laws concerning bicycle operation and the rights and responsibilities of both the bicyclists and motorists. During this mission, officers will concentrate their enforcement efforts on laws that concern the proper sharing of the roadway by all users. The enforcement action could result in a verbal warning, a written warning or a citation.
